Obama & Clinton Agree New York: Mistakes not Corruption Election Tally Results

What does it tell us when candidates themselves don't want to know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? No matter what the truth reveals?

The history of New York elections has been punctuated by episodes of confusion, incompetence and even occasional corruption. And election officials and lawyers for both Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton agree that it is not uncommon for mistakes to be made by weary inspectors rushing on election night to transcribe columns of numbers that are delivered first to the police and then to the news media.

Obama and Clinton's campaign agree that mistakes, rather than corruption, likely caused tired vote inspectors to get some results wrong, the Times reported, noting even an additional couple of hundred votes in New York might help Obama gain a few more delegates to the nominating convention in Denver this summer. in_primary/9769/
